This is not a Riu Palace, this is a good four star hotel. Do not be put off by negative reports, we all had an excellent holiday. No brand name spirits but red stripe lager - food good but no waiter service for drinks. The entertainment staff make this hotel - excellent shows and friendly staff who made us laugh every day. Rooms are very clean and did not see any cockroaches. Beach is clean and you only encounter seaweed when you swim out which the hotel can do nothing about. Take the snorkelling trip and go to Duns Falls and Mystic Mountain - the Thomson rep was not at all helpfull and looked totally miserable. Bar staff are so hardworking and appreciate manners when asking for drinks. No problems booking the restaurants and the Italian was excellent - I loved Jamaica and would return no problem!!!!
